Algorithms for routing vehicles and their application to the paratransit vehicle scheduling problem

Algorithms for routing vehicles and their application to the paratransit vehicle scheduling problem

Date: March 2012
Creator: Park, Myoungkuk; Oberlin, Paul; Rathinam, Sivakumar; Quadrifoglio, Luca & Darbha, Swaroop
Description: "As the demand for paratransit services increases, there is a constant pressure to maintain the quality of service provided to the customers while minimizing the cost of operation: this is especially important as the availability of public funding for paratransit services has been on the decline. Key tasks in accomplishing this objective are efficiently allocating vehicles to service trips and adjusting the schedules of vehicles dynamically in response to calls received by the service providers from the customers on the day of the service."

Use of performance measurement to include air quality and energy into mileage-based user fees

Use of performance measurement to include air quality and energy into mileage-based user fees

Date: March 2012
Creator: Farzaneh, Reza; Novak, Kristen; Baker, Richard T. & Goodin, Ginger
Description: "This research project is aimed at establishing a framework for levying MBUFs designed to achieve various air quality improvement policy objectives. This research presents the first step toward a pricing framework based on the concept of performance measurement that systematically defines and incorporates potential air quality goals. The process of developing the proposed framework included defining the interactive role of user fees and pricing in roadway transportation operations and identifying air quality performance measures for determining the appropriate vehicle mileage fee price."

Development of statistical models to forecast crossing times of commercial vehicles

Development of statistical models to forecast crossing times of commercial vehicles

Date: July 2011
Creator: Kang, Dong Hun; Ochoa, Cesar; Rajbhandari, Rajat & Garcia, Francisco
Description: In this report statistical models were developed to predict crossing times of trucks over a short range of time. The statistical prediction models use historic data and take into account empirical relationships between border-crossing-related parameters and truck crossing times.

Evaluating the use of transfers for improving rural public transportation systems

Evaluating the use of transfers for improving rural public transportation systems

Date: August 2011
Creator: Quadrifoglio, Luca; Shen, Chung-Wei & Edrington, Suzie
Description: "In this report researchers consider a variation of the regular demand responsive transit system that adopts the transfer practice to reduce operating costs.Researchers evaluated the effect of different transfer operating policies by developing a simulation model of several plausible scenarios. The results indicate that zoning with transfer can provide significant benefits paratransit operations that are managing zoning structure."

The value of public transportation for improving the quality of life for the rural elderly

The value of public transportation for improving the quality of life for the rural elderly

Date: July 2012
Creator: Mjelde, James W.; Dudensing, Rebekka; Cherrington, Linda Kay; Yanhong, Jin; Israel, Alicia A. & Chen, Junyi
Description: "This report focuses on non-medical transportation; medical transportation is addressed in the literature and is more widely available to the elderly. Because expanded rural transportation systems likely will be funded by taxpayers, an understanding of their preferences and willingness-to-pay for non-medical transportation options is essential."

The 2011 Mileage-Based User Fee Symposium

The 2011 Mileage-Based User Fee Symposium

Date: September 2011
Creator: Goodin, Ginger & Wood, Nicholas
Description: The fuel tax is rapidly losing its ability to support system needs. Federal environmental regulations and the escalating price of fossil fuels have created a strong incentive to develop and utilize more fuel-efficient vehicles, which will drive down fuel tax revenues relative to use of the nation's roadway network. Given the challenges associated with the declining sustainability of the fuel tax, the likely successor is a road user fee largely based on actual usage. This project sponsored the third annual two-day Symposium on Mileage-Based User Fees that brought together professionals in the field of mileage-based fees for the purpose of sharing information on current applications and exploring their potential as a supplement or replacement for the fuel tax.

Developing an interdisciplinary certificate program in transportation planning.  Phase 2,  The eCertificate: final report

Developing an interdisciplinary certificate program in transportation planning. Phase 2, The eCertificate: final report

Date: November 2011
Creator: Ndubisi, Forster & Dumbaugh, Eric
Description: This proposal extends the delivery of the recently developed graduate Certificate in Transportation Planning to a wider audience through the establishment of an Executive Certificate Program by distance (eCertificate). While the need for an interdisciplinary approach to transportation is widely recognized by the professional community, there are few educational programs that address the field of transportation in a truly comprehensive, interdisciplinary manner. Texas A&M University's (TAMU's) university-wide graduate Certificate in Transportation Planning was established in August 2008 to address this need. This program has proved to be very successful. A limitation of the existing certificate program is that it is available only to graduate students at TAMU in College Station. The eCertificate program extends the delivery of the existing certificate to a wider audience of professionals interested in transportation in selected metropolitan areas in Texas. Preliminary indications suggest that an audience for the certificate exists in major metropolitan areas in Texas, especially Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. The certificate will increase access, expand Texas A&M's transportation curriculum, and enhance the university's position as a national leader in transportation education.
